Default Carbine sight and barrel band

I recently bought an Underwood Carbine with mostly Underwood parts. Thankfully I wasn't buying it as a "correct" example. I'm pretty sure the flip sight and barrel band are not USGI. The bluing on the flip sight looks too new for one thing. The sling swivel on the barrel band looks like it came from a dollar store and it's more of a "D" shape than a rectangle. Other than that, it's got an Underwood barrel, trigger housing, hammer, flat bolt, RSG highwood stock, and nice 2 rivet handguard. Hopefully it's a good shooter!

Some of these pictures looked great on the phone but horrible once they were put on the computer. Sorry, but they are probably good enough to condemn the parts as not USGI?

Yep, bad photos, but both barrel band and flip sight look like fake to me. The barrel band looks like a commercial copy of a type 2 band.
